The King and I - Audition Dates and Info

Here are the details that you need to know about the upcoming musical auditions:

When: September 2nd and 3rd afterschool
Callbacks will be held afterschool on the 4th

What you need to prepare:

*Audition material will be provided for you (both the music and a short monologue from the show), so you don't need to get stressed out about finding a song or a monologue. The music will be available to pick up the first week of school.

***There will be an optional music review day to help you learn the audition piece on Tuesday, Sept. 1st, afterschool in the choir room.

*You will be required to learn a short dancing sequence during the dancing portion of the audition. This will be taught to you at the audition. Please wear appropriate clothing.
